The bill to codify marriage equality nationwide was overwhelmingly passed Tuesday in the U.S. House of Representatives. However, the Senate could be an entirely different story.
U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville of Alabama recently shared his thoughts on same-sex marriage.
Tuberville told reporters there’s “no need for legislating on gay marriage.”
But then he adds: ‘I’m all about live life the way you want to. It’s a free country.’ Do you support gay marriage? ‘Yeah, if that’s what you want to do, fine,’”
The bill comes after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, a move that caused concerns around other social issues approved by Supreme Court decisions, like same-sex marriage and access to contraception.
Tuberville coached at Auburn from 1999 to 2008 before finishing his coaching career at Texas Tech (2010-2012) and Cincinnati (2013-16). His career record in 21 seasons is 159-99.
